    No, its intentional. Damn near every theatrical review I've seen mentions it. What's most baffling is the style was established before Ron Howard came on, when the movie was meant to more of a fun comedy. Looks way to grim for a comedy (and even the final version has lots of (intended) humor, and darkness makes it hard to even see the actors expressions.

    If you guys like the Honest Trailer, here a more in-depth (and hilarious) analysis. I don't normally care for YouTube talking heads, but these guys are great:

    Was it that dark in the theater as well though? Or just the home release version(s)?

    Ah ok, well I guess I found the home solution then. Get the 4K disc, play it on a non HDR TV and assuming the disc player has an HDR conversion where you can set the level like the Sony X800, change it so it brightens the pic. When I did that while watching I could actually see what was going on at least somewhat better. I really thought it was an HDR conversion issue for me with that disc until I put the regular blu-ray in and noticed it was just as dark as the 4K disc before I changed the HDR conversion setting.

    Pure demo material, but to disappoint anyone jumping in for uhd bd.

    One of the worst presentations that I had seen in this format.

    The movie is a fun ride though, much better than the Last Jedi.
